Zombies, horror films, books, and an intense love of animals. These four things pretty much sum up everything you'll ever need to know about me.
God I hate interviews. It’s still 45 minutes away, but I’m already feeling the nervous stomach aches. Thank god I got back on my meds a week ago. Otherwise the stomach ache would be a lot worse, and I’d be hyperventilating.
Tonight I felt like praying. And I haven’t done that, nor believed in it, in a long time.
As someone who deals with depression often as a result of my social anxiety, it really scares me to know that Robin Williams lost the fight. If a man like him, one who was always laughing and bringing joy to both his fans & those around him, couldn’t get through it, what hope is there for me?

Started watching Penny Dreadful, and I’m ashamed of the horror fan within me for not watching this show sooner. It’s brilliant, featuring characters such as Dorian Gray and Frankenstein. And I’m even more in love with Eva Green now. She’s just so beautiful.
Anyways, if you haven’t seen this show yet, you must watch it.
I really need to learn keep up with my medications so that I don’t have to go through all the horrible first day side effects again. It’s been almost a month probably since I took my medication last, and I wanted to start back up, especially since I have an interview right around the corner. But I always forget how bad the side effects are in the beginning. I feel so nauseous and have to keep vomiting. I wish I didn’t even need these meds, or that I didn’t have this problem.
Ever since I decided I wanted to go into animal rescue, I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for any animal shelters hiring part time. You know, just for something on the side. Well two and a half weeks ago, I saw a Craig’s list ad for a local animal shelter that needed a vet tech for 25 hours each week, paying $20 an hour. Now anyone in this profession knows that vet techs are lucky enough to just make $13. Crap, right? Well luckily I’m not in this for the money.
Anyways, I was ecstatic. Plus it was a town job, so that means benefits. And I would only have to work 3 days to make the same amount I’ve been making at the animal hospital working full time.
So I applied, didn’t hear back anything for a long time, and decided to just forget about it. But then this morning I got a call from them, wanting to schedule an interview. I’m so happy, I cant contain myself. The interview isn’t until Thursday, but I’m already freaking out a little. I have to make sure I start taking my medication again so that I’m calm enough to pass as semi normal during the interview.
The lady seemed nice on the phone and explained what I’d be doing. The bulk of my duties would be medicating the sick animals, and then explaining the medical conditions to potential adopters. That’s the only part that scares me. I only just graduated school, and I feel like I don’t have enough education or confidence to say, “here’s what’s wrong with the dog, and this is what you have to do.” That’s really the job for someone with a bit of experience on their hands. So I’m hoping they understand that, and are willing to be patient with me as I learn.
